“Many of my illustrations and paintings are inspired by Korean folk arts. One of my favourite Korean symbols or folklore character is Horangi, the tiger. Tigers are revered as guardians and divine spirits and symbolize courage and power in Korean folklore and myth. By connecting this magnificent creature with the urban environment around me, I create an imagined utopia where my two different cultures (Korea and Canada) live together peacefully.”
